    Jolly decent of you to drop it all in!
    Now wait for the backlash from those that did not realise they needed .net4 for Discover!
    A lot of people say they don't have access to SupportNet, or know what it is so I thought I would copy & paste.

    If they don't have access to SupportNet then they can't be using SIMS because every user has the automatic right to be a SupportNet member! There is even a direct link via Tools on a user's SIMS Homepage!

    And any School or LA that wants to restrict this right is doing the user a MASSIVE disfavour!

    You are right though. I have heard of these self-imposed restrictions! Daft or Wot?

    It has also just been anounced that Solus 3 will be released at the end of this month.... or beginning of March in Capitaspeak.

    So because some schools/LAs are incapable of doing 3-8 mouse clicks on a WSUS console*, everyone has to wait? We've known about this requirement for ages.

    *and for those schools without WSUS.....you're either tiny and pushing 4.0 would take no time whatsoever or you're massive and bizarrely masochistic.

    Well, not exactly. You can push 4.0 out, and in fact will have to in order for Discover to work. Using SOLUS 3 will make pushing Discover out easier.
    What else was planned for Spring release that relied on .Net 4.0 and is now canned / delayed ?? Is there anything else?
    It sounds like it was merely preparatory, and obviously tied in with Discover launch. It must be the Summer release that has things that will only work on 4.0 hence the inability to push it back. Towards June it will defo be interesting to see if things go out on time.

    The only other thing that I am aware of that will have to be delayed is the address tidy routinue for importing from MIS systems that are not BS7666 standard.

    We are also aware of a minor issue with RM's network and .net4 for which there is a workaround and I was told yesterday that Sophos needs a fix too.

    Over the RM Communities, it's being reported that Capita are going to hold off until the summer release for .net 4.

    Not if you want to use SIMS Discover! You need it!

    You would think someone would have mentioned it on this thread too.

    Anybody using Schoolcomms, who upgrades to Version 7.2, will need .net4 as well. It actually installs as part of the Upgrade.
    On one workstation we encountered an RM issue. The support guys at Schoolcomms were aware of the issue and sorted it very quickly. No point asking me what the issue was as I just ain't that technical!
    I already had .net4 on my workstation as part of the Discover Field Trial and did not experience any issue when I upgraded my version of Schoolcomms.

    I had that schoolcomms issues, it prevented reports running because "the document server wasn't running". Adding the location of your sims server to the exceptions in the proxy settings sorted it out though!

    Something to note out of all this is that there are 2 different versions of .net 4. .net 4 client profile and .net4 full (there's no such thing as 'extended' as is being passed around by Capita and LEAs, other than the fact that Microsoft sometimes refers to the extra functionality in full as the 'extended' bit).

    The summer release requires the .Net 4 full version to be installed. Makes me wonder why it requires it though as the only extra bits in full are:
    • ASP.NET
    • Advanced Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) functionality
    • .NET Framework Data Provider for Oracle
    • MSBuild for compiling


    And I'm pretty sure that MS hasn't switched to WCF just yet!
